Facebook will soon release the v30 software update for the Oculus Quest and Quest 2 VR headsets, including microphone swapping and new accessibility features.
As Mark Zuckerberg hinted earlier this week, v30 includes a new multitasking interface for Infinite Office that allows you to run multiple apps simultaneously, such as the browser, Oculus TV, Oculus Move, the store, and so on.
It will be available in the Experimental section of the settings menu, as with many new Oculus Quest features, according to The Verge.
According to the company, apps can be dragged up from the menu bar or the app’s library and snapped into position once multitasking is enabled.
The v30 update also adds support for Air Link for the original Quest headset. Air Link was added to the Quest 2 in April, allowing you to wirelessly stream VR games from your PC to your headset rather than using Oculus Link, which requires a USB-C cable.
Previously, Original Quest owners could wirelessly stream PC games using the third-party app Virtual Desktop.
Other new features include the addition of an accessibility tab to the settings menu, which, among other things, allows for height adjustment so that games can be played while seated from a standing perspective.
Oculus has also added the ability to switch the built-in microphone on the headset between system-wide party chat and the app you’re using.
